Quick, affordable and scalable measurement of the energy performance of buildings.
HEAT3D takes technology that helps find people lost at sea and uses it to measure the energy performance of a building. Based on infrared thermal imaging, HEAT3D measures the U-value - the rate of heat flow through building elements such as walls, floors and roofs. But unlike other measurement techniques, it assesses the entire wall, not just a single point. The app-based technology also delivers results in less than two hours rather than several days, and presents the results as a 3D visual image. Site teams can use this highly-visual data to improve energy loss and make buildings more efficient. As well as improving current energy-saving measures in new builds and retrofits, HEAT3D can help provide a blueprint for more efficient buildings in the future.
